Property deals cannot be exited after offer is accepted

Property deals cannot be exited after offer is accepted

This is an interesting article from Realestateweb and in my opinion highlights why buyers and sellers should consult with their PROPERTY ATTORNEY throughout the process and particularly BEFORE SIGNING ANYTHING!

This will be the biggest financial transaction of their lives and yet people seem to be willing to enter it based upon blind faith. Great for litigation attorneys - not great for anyone else.

There are many honourable and professional people in the real estate game but there are also many "snakes" on the prowl for victims. Find honourable, honest and ethical people. Ask around.

My advice - make sure that you consult with a specialist Property Lawyer throughout the process.
